Fishnets are really her thing!

Read on for HIGHlights (below):

On filming her reality show: “I’ve become more comfortable with it. In the beginning I was like, ├óΓé¼╦£Fine, we can document the tour, we can show what’s happening behind the scenes, with the singers, the dancers, the this, the that. You can see me when I’m on stage, I’ll talk├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥blah blah blah.’ But what I started to realize is that my best moments are off the cuff.”

On getting divorced a second time: “I never thought I would [have children] either, but I never thought I would have babies with someone and then get divorced. Like, ├óΓé¼╦£Oh, great job. Repeat your past.’ But life happens, and it was supposed to happen. It’s fine. For [my children], I wish it hadn’t happened that way. For me, it was…[singing Johnny Mathis and Deniece Williams’ “Too Much, Too Little, Too Late”] Guess it’s over. Call it a day.”

On her relationship with James Packer: “I don’t expect him to be at every little thing that I do, and vice versa. He’s got a lot of stuff on his plate and so do I. There’s a mutual understanding.”

On her upcoming wedding and marriage: “We would like for it not to be a big thing, but the reality is it has to be. Because there’s things that are specifically mine, and he’s got huge friggin’ conglomerate stuff and I’m not looking to take that from him. So it has to be dealt with. Anytime you get married to somebody [it does]├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥and I should know. This’ll be marriage number three. My bishop said to me, ├óΓé¼╦£I don’t want you to go Elizabeth Taylor on me!’ I said, ├óΓé¼╦£I’m not’├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥and then I said ├óΓé¼╦£Bye.'”

On James Packer being a huge fan of her music: “Actually, if he didn’t like my music, then how would I be able to handle him being around when all I’m doing is creating? It’s cool.”
